6. Superman Returns (2006)
Her Heart's Not In It

In this love triangle, Richard White is the odd man out. Even though he technically has Lois Lane at the end of movie, he's got to realize she's in love with Supes and not him.

Who wouldn't want this guy?

I'm told James Marsden gets the guy.

10. The Box (2009)
I smell trouble

He had the girl but then he loses her.

11. Death at a Funeral (2010)
He's engaged!

Poor Oscar. He accidentally takes a hallucinogenic drug and shenanigans ensue. But he's got the girl!

People who added this item 306  Average listal rating (199 ratings) 5.4  IMDB Rating 5.3 
12. Bachelorette (2012)
Le Douchebag

Trevor realizes that the only way to get the girl is to be a douche. But then the girl realizes she doesn't want him.


James Marsden usually plays characters who has the girl at the start of the movie but loses her to a romantic rival at the end.

It's becoming a running joke between me and friends that we watch James Marsden movies just to see whether he strikes out or not.

Hahahaha, great list. James Marsden is a joke.

What about in Sex Drive...?
Posted: 5 years, 7 months ago at Jan 12 9:31
I haven't seen Sex Drive. Does he get the girl?
Posted: 5 years, 3 months ago at May 24 21:33
Good one! haha...

He was also in Disturbing Behavior. There's a long time I've seen it, and it is a film beyond forgettable, but I guess he gets the girl in that one right?
Posted: 5 years, 3 months ago at May 25 0:48
Yeah he go the girl (Katie Holmes) in that one.
Posted: 5 years, 3 months ago at May 29 13:57
He got the guy in Sex Drive.

HAHA, I never realized that. Very original! XD

So funny!! Great list, and so true! poor James :P

I'm watching the Notebook right now and I remembered your list. :O

Great idea with this list. I love James Marsden but you're right, he never gets the girl.
Posted: 1 year ago at Aug 16 2:35
Very nicely done :)

People always get him confused with actor James Marsters as well. I had a very difficult time convincing my friend that the guy in 27 Dresses was not the guys who plays Spike on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Haha nice list. He's in 2 Guns, by the way, and it's implied that he and the girl are in a relationship (but she's obviously in love with Denzel Washington's character). A potential addition?
Posted: 1 year ago at Aug 16 8:20
'Sex Drive' was hilarious! You should see that one for his and Seth Green's roles.

'Gossip' is another title I'd consider. He has the girl before the story starts, but by the time we meet his character, he's already lost her. It's also a stupid-good thriller.

I think this list is brilliant! I love noticing little things like this when watching movies. Highly entertaining!
